The NHL comes to Madison Square Garden when the Edmonton Oilers visit the New York Rangers.
The Edmonton Oilers are on the road for the third straight game with a stop to face the New York Rangers. Edmonton will be looking for a three game winning streak after downing the New Jersey Devils 3-2 in overtime on Thursday night.
This was the first time the Oilers had won consecutive contests thanks to Leon Draisaitl with his tally with just 17 seconds remaining in the extra session. Anton Slepyshev and Milan Lucic scored in regulation while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins added two assists to make Cam Talbot and his 32 stops a winner.
Brian Boyle gave New Jersey a 1-0 lead at 5:53 of the first and Drew Stafford scored with 1:35 left in the second period for a 2-1 advantage. Boyle also logged an assist while Cory Schneider made 29 saves as the Devils dropped number four in a row.
The New York Rangers are hoping to stay in the groove when the Edmonton Oilers take the ice on Saturday. New York has won five consecutive contests following a 4-2 decision versus the Boston Bruins on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.
The Rangers were strong at both ends of the ice with Jimmy Vesey pacing the attack with a pair of goals. Rick Nash and Pavel Buchnevich also lit the lamp while Ryan McDonagh supplied a pair of helpers to make the 31 stops of Henrik Lundqvist a winning effort.
The Bruins offense came off the sticks of David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron with Bergeron completing a two point night with an assist. Tuukka Rask was charged with three goals on 32 shots to absorb the loss for Boston.

Oilers are 1-6 in their last 7 games following a win. Over is 5-0 in Rangers last 5 vs. a team with a losing record and over is 4-0 in Rangers last 4 home games and Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win.
